    Ep. 18 - Telling Truth Through Science Fiction with Tony & Ryan Smith

    There's something unique about the genre of science fiction: it opens doors to telling more truthful stories and tackling difficult topics.

    In this episode, Hudson talks with brothers Tony and Ryan Smith, a writing-directing duo based in Vancouver, BA. The Smith Brothers talk about their recent film, Volition, and the deeper themes of identity and fate. Authenticity is the key to telling truthful stories and your voice has a power unlike any other. By learning how to tap into it, the road begins to pave itself.

    Ep. 17 - The Magic of Collaboration with Profound Clarke

    Ep. 17 - The Magic of Collaboration with Profound Clarke

    Profound Clarke is a musician, screenwriter, and founder of Storyteller Session -- a weekly live table read event that pairs writers with professional actors so they can hear their work read out loud and get better feedback on their scripts. In this episode, we discuss introverts, how collaboration gets the best out of us, and why table reads are better than paying for feedback.

    Ep. 14 – Telling Stories Across Multiple Mediums with David Accampo

    One of the biggest struggles every writer faces is choosing what medium to work in. Well, what if we told you that you could do it all? 

    In this episode, Hudson talks with David Accampo on how his childhood love for superheroes turned into a successful career that branched into five different mediums – comics and graphic novels, films, games, short stories, and an audio drama. David’s writing journey allowed him to connect the dots and knit together all of his passions in a way that allows him to tell his truth, no matter the outlet. Today, he’ll answer your questions:

    -        What medium is best for writing my story?
    -        What if I can’t afford a collaborator?
    -        How do I tell relatable stories through fiction?
    -        And so much more!
